Bundesliga match report: Bayern Munich 4-2 Borussia Dortmund

🌪️ Marc Cucurella has made the most overlapping runs of any #CFC player so far this season. He’s combined with Sterling (7), Mount (6) and Havertz (6) regularly in his attacking runs.

🤕 He misses the game against #CPFC with illness. A boost for Palace?

Lewandowski scores hat-trick as Bayern stage comeback

Robert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick as Bayern Munich came from two goals down in the first 10 minutes to complete a stirring comeback and beat Borussia Dortmund 4-2 in ‘Der Klassiker’.

Norwegian sensation Erling Haaland scored twice in the opening 10 minutes to shock the Bundesliga champions.


First half

His driven shot after two minutes that deflected off Jerome Boateng’s outstretched leg gave the visitors the lead, before he netted his 19th Bundesliga goal of the season with a clinical finish from close range after a Thorgan Hazard pull-back.

Haaland’s opener was the earliest goal to be scored in a ‘Der Klassiker’ match since Jan Koller’s in May 2006.

However, Bayern aren’t a side who roll over, and they halved the deficit after 26 minutes with a tap-in by Lewandowski after Leroy Sane turned past Nico Schulz and crossed for the striker to finish.

On the stroke of half time, Hansi Flick’s side found themselves level. A VAR review ruled that Kingsley Coman was tripped in the penalty area and Lewandowski finished with aplomb from the spot.

Second half

Haaland had to come off on the hour mark due to an ankle knock meaning BVB were short of firepower. Jadon Sancho was also missing for the visitors through injury.

Dortmund were clinging on for a point but they were unable to see it out until the end as Leon Goretzka volleyed into the bottom corner.

It was cruel on Dortmund when Lewandowski added a late fourth to complete his hat-trick and near ever closer to equalling Gerd Muller’s record


What it means

After RB Leipzig’s 3-0 win against Freiburg, Bayern Munich were relegated to second before kick-off. However, the sensational comeback means they have restored their two-point lead at the top. Dortmund drop to sixth and are four points off fourth.


Stats

Robert Lewandowski has 31 Bundesliga goals and just needs nine more in 10 games to match the incredible 40 Bundesliga goals. He is the first player to reach 31 goals after 24 matches.

The Pole has scored 20 Bundesliga goals in 14 appearances against his former club.

Bayern have now scored four or more in their last six home games against Dortmund and have won their last seven home games against the Black and Yellow.
